Rae Sremmurd

Tupelo, Mississippi. It’s the home of Elvis Presley, but even for those clued in on that fun fact, it’s safe to say that few, if any, knowmuch more about thecity than that. Nestled in the northeast corner of the Magnolia State, and with a population of just over35,000, indeed, Tupelo, like most smallmetropolises, is easy to overlook.

Tupelo, Mississippi. It’s the home of Elvis Presley, but even for those clued in on that fun fact, it’s safe to say that few, if any, knowmuch more about thecity than that. Nestled in the northeast corner of the Magnolia State, and with a population of just over35,000, indeed, Tupelo, like most smallmetropolises, is easy to overlook. Rae Sremmurd - pronounced “Ray-Shrim-er,” consisting ofreal life brothers Slim Jimmy and Swae Lee, and newlysigned to multi-platinum producer Mike WiLL Made-It’s Eardruma Records - isout to change that. Slim Jimmy, 20, and Swae Lee, 19, were born in California, but moved to Tupelo at an early age, where they were raised in thenotorious Ida Streethousing projects, it was kinda badd at times most crime-ridden in the state. Making matters worse, Sremmurd’sparents split while the brothers were stillyoung, a devastating turn of events that found the brothers multiple stretches, seekingshelter in abandoned homes scattered throughout the area. For acity with little history outside of its musical heritage, and in a statewhere two young kids short on role models could look up to the growing star power ofin-state hero David Banner, music, from ayoung age, became a way for Slim and Swae to escape the desperation of their surroundings. “When we weregrowing up, it wasjust about perseverance,” says Slim Jimmy, before flipping a quote made famous by Stark Trek character RichardWakinyan.“Regardless of the situation, we couldn’t let the haters win.” « hide
